well it should only be one more week till the cabin gets here and i can’t wait. I’m so excited i can’t stand it right now.  I have been getting things ready and drawing up plans, researching solar setups that i could afford, and picking up a few odds and ends to put in the cabin. I designed a set of operable shutters to put over the windows, just have to make a trip to the hardware store to get some lumber and supplies.  Well i should have more to come in a few days, see ya then !!

well some good news today. Finally got the cabin ordered and it will be here in 2 weeks.  I got the 12 ft wide x 36 ft long one. 6 ft of it will be a porch to store some firewood or have a couple chairs or bench. next step after it gets here will be to start getting the inside fixed the way i want it and putting in the wood stove. I have a queen sized mattress for one bed and 2 mattresses we saved from a set of bunk beds we got rid of for the bunks i’m gonna build in the cabin. I’m also gonna make a set of working wooden shutters for the 4 windows just in case the weather gets real bad or i’m not there. This weekend i also picked up a 2 1/2 lb boys axe for splitting kindling, a fireplace tool set for $15 and the fire grate to go in the wood stove. Man i am so excited i’ll have more to come !
